How to Clean Your UV Curing Lamp | Alpha-Cure Top Tips!
To extend your UV lamp life and ensure it is running at full capacity, it is vital you stick to a regular maintenance cleaning schedule. Don't worry! We have put together some easy steps to guide you through taking care of your lamp.
UV Lamp Electrode Erosion | Alpha-Cure Troubleshooting
During normal operation, the electrodes start to erode, and the tungsten material starts to sputter depositing on the inside of the quartz body. When the transparency of the quartz body is compromised, UV output potential is significantly reduced.
UV Lamp Devitrification | Alpha-Cure Troubleshooting
When a UV lamp stops curing within the UV system, it’s generally down to one of just a few common occurrences. Devitrification reduces the transparency of the quartz, which can lead to poor curing performance.
UV Lamp Bowing/Deformation | Alpha-Cure Troubleshooting
The UV Lamp has overheated due to poor air circulation within the UV System, this is more common with longer lamps due to the increased requirement for airflow across a larger surface area.
UV Lamp External Contamination | Alpha-Cure Troubleshooting
When a UV lamp stops curing within the UV system, it’s generally down to one of just a few common occurrences. Dust in the curing area or handling the UV lamp without gloves can lead to external contamination, which will reduce the curing performance and lifetime of the lamp.
UV Lamp Mirror Coating | Alpha-Cure Troubleshooting
When a UV lamp stops curing within the UV system, it’s generally down to one of just a few common occurrences. Over-cooling results in a combination of tungsten from the electrode and mercury, condensing onto the inside of the lamp ends giving it a mirror-coated effect.
